Is play at camera mount normal for a 31mm mounted on the K-1ii?

I picked up a new 31mm recently and have really enjoyed the lens with two exceptions. One it has fairly obvious CA/purple fringing that has to be massaged in post. And two the lens seems to have more ability to shift around on the camera mount than I’m used to. It’s not in danger of falling off but I can definitely rotate it maybe 1/2 a cm back and forth after locking it into the mount. For comparison my FA 50 has about 1/3rd as much play when mounted (essentially none).

Is this normal for these film designed metal bodied lenses? Should I try a second copy?
